2017 is nearly over, but guess what? New No Age! Not new age No Age (except for the odd "Sun Spots"/ "Keechie"-style shimmer that only ever makes everything better), but definitely an age of album-making located somewhere beyond and back from where we last heard 'em in 2013.

Recorded in a few days and mixed forever, Snares Like a Haircut finds No Age in full on mode, because there was nothing else to do but go full on. In the songs inside the songs, the thumpy/thwappy drums, the desperately voiced paeans to determination, the churning and the stinging-but-shiny fuck-it built into the structure, a promise from the 1980s echoes once again across today, for the undetermined in-between generation reality seekers.

Just take a listen to "Drippy," an absolute ripper with that familiar yet distant flanging of the guitar echoing endlessly in our memory. Urgent and immediate, "Drippy" wraps y'all up in a sweeping wash of sound punctuated by the acute vocals. Not only is Snares Like A Haircut is out January 26th (preorder now!), but the lads are also primed to hit the international roads again, announcing both a West Coast and European tour.
